GIF: Blues score on themselves to start the season

The St. Louis Blues are trying to put another embarrassing early playoff exit behind them. What better way to do that than by scoring on your own net to start the new season? Alex Pietrangelo attempted to clear the puck out to start the penalty kill, but it didn’t go according to plan. He hit Alexander Steen and the Oilers were up 1-0. Not the best way to start.

ST. LOUIS -- After three straight first-round playoff exits, the St. Louis Blues have learned to temper expectations. They have been consistently among the NHL's best in the regular season and realize it is past time to build something for the long haul.

Central Division Preview- The Same Old Tune

By @GreekGoalie35 The St. Louis Blues went into another summer shaking their heads at what went wrong. As the franchise enters its 49th season of existence in the NHL, they’ve yet to drink from Lord Stanley’s Cup.

It sounds like Robby Fabbri will make the opening night roster

Carl Gunnarsson may start the year on the IR

Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson may be forced to begin the season on the IR as he continues to deal with a groin injury. Details on the injury have been fairly limited (at least we have more of a description from the usually vague “lower-body” classifier), but it sounds like the injury is a bit more severe than originally expected. Post-Dispatch writer covered Gunnarsson’s...

Brodeur wanted a job with the Devils, but everyone left

It was widely believed that Martin Brodeur would retire as a member of the New Jersey Devils and would later take on a role in the Devils’ front office after officially hanging up his skates. That plan flew out the window as Brodeur briefly suited up for the St. Louis Blues and later accepted a job as the team’s assistant general manager. Why didn’t Brodeur end up with the...

Blues: Trade or keep David Backes?

To trade David Backes or not. For the St. Louis Blues, that is the infinite question. The captain is revered and respected inside the clubhouse and around the NHL and puts up solid regular season numbers, but is that enough for the Blues to hang onto him if an enticing offer comes forward?
